Re: Sega announces a new House of the Dead for the Arcades using Unreal Engine 4!

I do enjoy light gun games, so kudos to Nintendo if the Switch can make an accurate and fun game in that style. I am not a fan of moving a cursor - now you're talking a trackball or mouse setup.

Re: Sega announces a new House of the Dead for the Arcades using Unreal Engine 4!

Oh wow I would be loving this, but as Zeta X mentioned, so sure if they could provide light-gun style controls. At this point though I'd think I'd settle for moving a cursor around the screen! I believe the more modern (i.e. Wii Motion Plus and later) gyro controls allow for lightgun type shooting ...

Re: Star wars the last jedi spoilers ahead.

Luke being a broken, regretful individual makes good narrative sense, and imbues his character with a level of humanity that the series has never shown. I appreciate your insights. With Obi Wan, we saw another older recluse. Obi Wan had retreated from the affairs of the Universe, but not from the F...

Re: Star wars the last jedi spoilers ahead.

So The Last Jedi has like a 90% Fresh on Rotten Tomatos from critics, but only 50% from fans. I think people are too quick to dismiss the negative feedback. I liked the movie, but I hear and get the complaints over characters like Luke defying expectations about the character. Fans have a say about ...

Re: All these daggone wires!

That’s a heck of a console collection. Question to owners of The Master System. I make pretty decent money but a lot of financial obligations. Is the Master System worth picking up? I think so, my friend. I give it Zillion stars. That's a bad Master System joke, but I like it. You have a Genesis, s...

Re: Atari Flashbacks

Look for an Atari Jr with an a/v mod too. I think the Jr's have the easiest mod, so they are not hard to find if you do not want to mod a system you already have. I think when asked, Hyperion said something about the pin connectors being too rare. Some people did mod the Atari Flashback 2, but then ...

Re: Obscure Systems

Thanks Fusemigames. I kept meaning to answer Sut's query, but I hadn't yet.

Also, those Video Pinball Units are not expensive, so if the resistor surgery doesn't pan out, maybe you can snag the woodgrain model.

Re: Top 5 films by genre

I found this older thread http://videogamecritic.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=202515&t=4627 about essentially the same idea of favorite movies. One that keeps coming up is Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. This just aired on TCM's "The Essentials" and a director called it the most essenti...
